New Post at Gorgeously #Green: Salmonella in peanut butter - If you have a jar of Trader Joes creamy Valencia... toss!

If you’ve never had salmonella poisoning, I can assure you that it’s not fun. I got it from some undercooked chicken in England – chicken that was cooked by my mother! The awful thing is that I remember commenting that it looked a bit pink, and mom telling me “not to be ridiculous.” The poor woman’s never forgiven herself because I was so ill. The symptoms typically present 12-72 hours after infection (which is exactly when I was on my way to Ireland on a ferry!). Symptoms include violent stomach cramps, throwing-up, diarrhea, aching muscles, shivers and headaches. There are 40,000 cases of Salmonella reported in America each year, and 600 of those are fatal.
